Neighbour Disputes

As you have to live next-door to your neighbour, we aim to resolve disputes as amicably without exacerbating the situation. If your neighbours are causing you problems and being a nuisance, the likely-hood is, without resolving any potential dispute they can affect the sale of your property in the future.

We therefore recommend reaching a solution sooner rather than later before the breakdown of the relationship is beyond repair. We appreciate that neighbour based litigation is often founded on a matter of principle but this can be a costly exercise. An early assessment of your case will put you into a position where you can judge for yourself whether you deem it worth pursuing.

Examples of statutory nuisance we can help you with include -

  • noise including loud music and barking dogs
  • artificial lights excluding street lamps
  • dust, steam, insects or smells from a business
  • smoke, fumes and gases
  • a build-up of rubbish that could affect your health

This list is not exhaustive. If you are considering taking legal action against your neighbour, what-ever the problem, please contact our Dispute Resolution Team
